Wheelchair Van & Lift Funding

Locating sources of funding to adapt or purchase a wheelchair accessible vehicle can sometimes be more of a challenge than selecting the vehicle itself! Success often depends on knowing where to look. Your BraunAbility dealer can help guide you in your search, but it’s important to recognize opportunities that may be unique to your circumstances.
